Santorini

Beaches · Landmarks · Ruins
Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano. To personalize your trip to Santorini, create itinerary details specific to you using our Greece day trip site.

Where to stay in Santorini

The vast majority of visitors to Santorini flock to the island's western side, where popular towns like Fira and Oia offer rooms with sweeping views of the caldera and the sea. The beach hotels on the eastern side of the island remain less crowded, though they offer more affordable lodgings without skimping on modern amenities. Keep in mind that even private inns and budget hotels hike their prices at the start of each tourist season, so think ahead and take advantage of discounts by booking well in advance.
